The effects of indoor tanning General Purpose: To persuade Specific Purpose: To persuade the audience not to use indoor tanning beds. Thesis Statement: Organizational Pattern: problem-cause solution Introduction Attention Getter: There is an unexplained increase in skin cancer among people under the age of forty. 30 million people visit an indoor facility each year according to the indoor tanning association. That is 10 percent of the U.S. population voluntarily exposing themselves to UV radiation which causes cancer. UV radiation is a form of energy from natural and artificial sunlight.
Skin cancer is a very dangerous disease, but if you are careful and know your facts, it can be easily avoided. During this speech, I will tell you about Skin cancer, what it is, why it is so dangerous, and how to prevent it. To start, what exactly is skin cancer? According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, “Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells.” Skin cancer often develops because the skin was exposed to ultraviolet radiation in the sun or tanning beds, and it normally shows up in an irregular spot or mole on the skin. Some types of skin cancer do not grow or spread, so therefore do are not “staged”, but for the ones that do, stage 0 is when the skin cancer cells are strictly in the epidermis.
You may have a more youthful appearance. Most instances of keratoses stay benign, there are studies that show up to ten percent may change to squamous cell carcinoma. Up to 40 – 50 percent of squamous cell carcinomas, invade the surrounding tissue and two to 10 percent of these are life threatening. There is no need to worry about your chances of developing skin cancer, when a Micro Laser Peel is a simple and convenient way to remove keratoses. If you have many keratoses, you have a greater chance of developing skin cancer.
It consists of a concentrated light that gives off heat to destroy the tumor. This outpatient procedure is quick, but it can cause mild bruising that can last up to ten days. 4. Shave Excision. This procedure involves slicing away at the angioma in thin layers until it’s gone.
However, people who use tanning beds don’t have many complications. Frequent tanning bed users regulate how much they tan to reduce the risks of complications. People only tan two to three months out of the year limiting their risk to skin cancer and other complications. Tanning beds actually do give off a healthier complexion and a nice, even tan. Indoor tanning has been proven to cause skin cancer.
On the other hand, exposing yourself to the sun or UV lamps repeatedly to hope to have the darkest complexion possible is a bad idea. You may just catch a sunburn (or neon!). And believe me, it 's not very attractive the lobster look at the prom. Pay attention to your skin and do not do anything excessive. Self-tanning level if you are used, o.k., why not?.

Tumor treatment by hyperthermia has limitations, however, that the most of nanoparticles do not have high specific absorption rate. At least 10% of tumor weight should be absorbed in order to be effective to heat-ablate tumors through hyperthermia. Treatment of malignant tumors at any site in the body is expected to be possible if agents that convert RF energy into heat can be delivered to the malignant cells. However, RF ablation suffers from the disadvantage that it is an invasive method that often requires insertion of electrodes into the body to deliver RF to the tumor sites. Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles of a correctly determined size are appropriate for in vivo hyperthermia applications, as they have no net magnetization without the external magnetic field.
Often times, fatal diseases don’t surface the minds of the average person. However, “approximately 38.5 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer of any site at some point during their lifetime” (1), proving that it is far more prevalent than we think. So while cancer treatment may not seem relevant to a healthy person, it is still essential to be informed about options for medical care. One of the more common forms of is radiation therapy. In fact, approximately 50% of all cancer patients will go through this type of treatment (4).
After treatment, addition, new blood vessels may develop. The photodynamic therapy also aims to destroy the fragile blood vessels, but this is achieved by injecting a drug that adheres to the surface of said vessel, and subsequently illuminating the eye with a light that activates the drug. The activated drug destroys blood vessels only, without affecting healthy tissues. This treatment does not restore lost vision, but retards the progress of the disease. A recently developed a new treatment for macular degeneration with very good results in general (although there are people who do not respond to this treatment), which is based on the use of injections periodic anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth ), they are hindering the development of new vessels, which is the alteration that really worsens the prognosis of the disease.
